Fugawi N. England and C. Scotland 1:50,000 2010

£63.00

For its 1:50,000 series Fugawi had split Great Britain into four distinct areas, with this disc starting to the north of Manchester and ending frustratingly south of Glen Coe, Fort William and the Cairngorms. They also offer chunks of the UK in 1:25,000 Explorer-style mapping as well. There’s an enormous amount of OS data crammed onto the CD, but the ...

Switch Sticks Hiking

£55.00

These trekking poles from Switch Sticks come in fancy colours and have a good handle, but there’s a thin strap with a fiddly buckle. Heavy, and they also vibrate annoyingly in use. The twist-lock doesn’t feel as secure as some, and nor were the baskets, making them too easy to lose. They’re let down by very poor straps and handles. ...

Brasher Anti-Shock Rubber

£60.00

These walking poles from Brasher have a wedge system on the straps which is fiddly to adjust, but they feel comfy once you set the correct length. The rubber handle is slightly lumpy and the various grooves chafe after a few miles. The locking mechanism is not very positive to adjust, but stays secure, and the optional anti-shock is useful. ...
